Copying Content from your iPod to your Computer - The Definitive Guide

Thank you for great advice! I just succeeded getting my iPod content onto my new Windows computer the ‘manual’ way!

Beware however!! One thing I had to discover myself was that even after un-hiding the files and downloading a free trial of Macdrive 9 it would not work. I then poked around the iPod as another drive and found the music files as ‘read only’. As soon as I unchecked the ‘read only’ it worked!! The whole content of my iPod onto my new PC!

Thank you!!

New in iOS 7 For iPad, iPhone + iPod touch: Details + Screens

The iOP7 has destroyed the Voice Memo app, one of the most useful features for this phone. It has also made the camera more difficult to operate. And it ismuch harder to read the main screen.

Could Steve Jobs please come back from the dead?

(and I’m really glad I sold my Apple stock.)

iOS 7: Delete photos from Camera Roll without removing from Photo Stream

I am trying to delete some pics from my 5c to free up space as I can’t even update the phone.  My pics are backed up on iCloud on my MacBook including contact pictures.  My question is if I delete a picture from the phone that I used as a contact pic will that pic remain in contacts or once it’s deleted is it gone from the contact list as well?

The Complete Guide to Transferring your Content to a new iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

I have bought a new iPhone 5s and am trying to get my music and tones from the back up to the new phone. I have done all you suggested and still no luck. The only music that is showing up is stuff I have bought since I have gotten the new phone. I was using iTunes (to my computer) for my backup and it shows all the tones I purchased but none of my previous music. Either way, I cannot get either to advance to my phone. Am I out of luck because of the new OS? or something else?

FYI the music is from CDs that I had on my computer and I just uploaded them to the phone. However, that was 2 computers ago. Do I have to do all that again? It should be in the backup on my new machine….right?

The current backup only does contacts, the calendar and apps to restore.

THANKS for any help.

Copying Content from your iPod to your Computer - The Definitive Guide

I’ve done the brute approach (I have a mac).  I found the music file and even copied to the desktop.  My problem is that when I go into itunes and “add to library” it isn’t showing up even though I can clearly see the file on my desktop and see it in Finder(although it is shaded as if hidden).  How do I get itunes to see this and add it?

Accessing an older iCloud backup

It would be bloody great if there was a way to see what backups you have listed BEFORE deleting all content.  I went through these steps and the backups only went back two days which was no help at all.  Apple FAIL.

Problems sending via AirDrop

This article helped me identify that the wrong name was showing up on others phones because I had my wife’s email address associated with the AppleID account.  Once I removed her email address, then my Name was appearing on others phones when trying to use AirDrop.  Thank you.

Quickly And Wisely Reducing Your iCloud Footprint

Two questions:

1. Does deleting your iCloud account also delete the storage plan I have in place until December 2014?

2. How can I turn off the “Approve with Security Code”? I no longer have the phone number that the verification system wants to use.

Thanks!

Removing Purchased Apps from iCloud

wow , thank you so much HiEyes. This was one of the reason for my breakup (Which turned out to be a great thing) My ex was told I had a dating app on my phone , which i had no idea about so i showed her that there is no dating app on my phone, We went to the app store and the cloud was in the corner showing that it was on my Itunes account somewhere. After doing some research I found out the app was downloaded 2 years prior from a guy at work explaining to me how the app worked. True story

Reliability of the Find My iPhone Feature

Apple won’t do anything even if you report the device stolen and it has the find my iPhone app on. They just tell you to call the police and report it stolen.

Limiting content displayed on multiple Apple TVs

It is possible to run a second iTunes instance without stretching to another computer. Simply create another user account on your existing computer and log both in at once. The only drawback is having to log both users in after a reboot, but that can be automated as well.
I run a second iTunes on the same iMac with a limited set of movies that suit my kids. Works like a charm!
